Once you identify the two new sources that you will actually use for project 3, list each source should in mla format (the complete citation)
Research is a recursive process, meaning that we have to keep returning to it with fresh eyes. Each time we go back, we have new things we are looking for and new understanding of the ideas we’re reading about. At work and at school, as we get further along in a project, we keep having to find more research to complete the different phases of the project and we may have revisit sources we already looked at.
As you prepare to write your Unit 3 project, you will see that the research you did in Unit 2 was not enough to complete the project in this unit. There will be things you still don’t quite understand; things you remember reading but can’t find now; questions that come up as you write that you need to answer before continuing.
For this assignment, I want you to find 2 new sources to use in your Unit 3 project. Importantly, I do not mean any three sources that will just be tacked on to your works cited–but sources that will actually help you. I recommend making an outline of your Unit 3 project (building off of what you wrote for the Working Plan) or even starting a draft of the project and thinking about which sources from your Unit 2 project will help you write. Then ask yourself, “Where are the gaps? What kind of information do I still need?” This assignment will help you most if you think about what you still need before you set out to find it.
Once you identify the two new sources that you will actually use for Project 3, list each source should in MLA format (the complete citation)
. Then, for each source, write a brief explanation (at least 100 words each) why you are adding that source to your list. Here are some questions to consider as you write your explanation: Why do you need this source?
What information does it contain that you did not have before?
How does it build on information you already had?
What section or portion of your document will it help you write?
What specific part of source, or what specific information within the source, will you use?
How will this source help you to achieve your rhetorical purpose?
